Merrimac is your mobile companion to the Rackspace Monitoring API. If uptime matters for your cloud infrastructure, Merrimac is a must have for notifications while you are away from your computer. It supports the latest iOS features and supports any device that runs iOS 7. Merrimac is a collaboration between Nathan Jones (@nathanhjones) and John Szumski (@jszumski).

Why use the name Merrimac for a monitoring companion app? Well, the USS Merrimack (commonly spelled Merrimac and later renamed the CSS Virginia) was the first ironclad ship in history and battled the USS Monitor during the United States Civil War. Unfortunately, she eventually sank, but we're here to help you from doing the same.
